We come to you! All our parties must be held indoors unless otherwise negotiated. Our costumes and wigs are very expensive and we don't want to ruin them.

6. What days and hours do you do parties?
Availability depends on the character you are booking as we work on a first come first serve basis. We are can book a party or event any day of the week during day hours.
7. How much do I tip?
Our performers job begins far before they arrive at your party. They research and study the characters, rehearse the songs, recreate character-specific makeup, and more. You're welcome to show your appreciation via gratuity for your actor(s). Although it is appreciated, it is not required! Typically, gratuity ranges from $20 to $100. We ask that you provide tips in an envelope and handed discretely to the handler at the end of the event. This helps to keep the magic alive for the children.
8. Are you Licensed?
Please note that our characters are NOT the licensed, copyrighted or trademarked characters you may be familiar with, but representations of characters from the classic fairy tales. These stories and characters are very old (some by hundreds of years!) and many versions have become public domain. We are NOT affiliated with any company, group or theme park that may own the rights to similar characters or stories and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
9. What can I do?
Please ensure there is a proper amount of space for our princesses to have fun with all of the kids in! There will be dancing and games plus so much more and it really can make all the difference to have enough space to allow all party guests to really get those wiggles out! Most importantly you can have fun! This party may be for your little one but everyone is welcome and encouraged to have fun with us!
